Jet Aviation has received International Standard for Business Aircraft Handling (IS-BAH) Stage 2 Safety Registration for 20 of its FBOs across EMEA and the Americas. The company intends to achieve IS-BAH Standard registration for its new Hawker Pacific and KLM Jet Center FBOs in 2019.
Based around a safety management system that models the structure and format of the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operators (IS-BAO), IS-BAH establishes criteria for best handling systems, processes and practices to ensure FBOs meet rigorous safety and security standards.
In EMEA and Asia, Jet Aviation received IS-BAH Stage 2 Safety Registration for FBOs in Geneva and Zurich, Switzerland; Berlin (Schonefeld), Dusseldorf and Munich, Germany; Vienna, Austria; Dubai (DXB and DWC), United Arab Emirates; Jeddah, Medina, and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; and Singapore.
In the USA, FBO were accredited in Washington Dulles, Virginia; Teterboro, New Jersey; Bedford, Massachusetts; Palm Beach, Florida; Dallas and Houston, Texas; St Louis, Missouri; and Van Nuys in California.
Stefan Benz, SVP regional operations, EMEA, at Jet Aviation, said, “Two years ago, we announced that we had earned IS-BAH Standard registration at 11 of our facilities. Today, we have achieved Stage 2 at nearly double that number. This is a great credit to our teams of FBO professionals and clearly underscores Jet’s culture of global safety.”
